> grinding noise
A few possibilities:
- one cable inside the computer is touching the blades of a spinning fan;
- something inside the CD/DVD device is not properly "seated", and when the motor tries to spin what it expects to be a CD or DVD media, something else was inserted. Got any child in your house who pressed the "open the tray" button, and inserted a toy, and pressed the "close the tray" button, thinking that the CD/DVD device was a microwave oven?
- your computer's disk-drive is failing. Compare to a needle running over the surface of a vinyl record, making noises. The disk-drive's read/write head is grinding against the recording-surfaces.
- one of the fans inside the computer is way out of balance, and is "wobbling" as it spins.
